What does this mean?
What are these mansions?
How many are there?
Can we access them?
There is only One great, collective consciousness in the universe, but within the One are countless other levels and realms. This is what is meant by Jesus' teaching, "In my father's house are many mansions."
When tapping into higher consciousness, into the One great collective consciousness, there are limitless "mansions" available. They are the information of creation. There is only One great, collective consciousness in the universe. Within the One we find countless other levels and realms.
Tapping into Higher Consciousness: Visiting the Mansions
The mansions are levels of understanding. They are like the brain's neurotransmitters… a limitless network of connecting fibers that contain and transmit the collective visions, experiences, creations and projections of every soul, including the souls of plants, minerals and animals. These mansions contain the accumulation of all experience and all creation. They're limitless and impossible to count… universes upon universes upon universes. They cannot be understood in human terms because they exist beyond the measures of time and space. Yet as limitless as they are, the ONE consciousness contains them all. It is the energetic realm in which we are all connected and functioning in harmony with all the parts of the whole.
How Many Are There?
When you tapping into higher consciousness, that One consciousness, all of the mansions are available to you. This is where the information of creation is stored; this is the Akashic record. It is a library of energy to which we all contribute, and the pilgrimage we make to earth when we incarnate is for this very purpose… to accumulate experience and gather information for The Library of Time. The experiences we create on earth are the ways in which we volunteer to contribute to the library. We are mining information to educate and nurture the collective, and we do this with great love, because this is our strongest commitment. This is why we continually opt for incarnation, and why we chose to come to earth in the first place, like worker bees supporting a hive. All our experiences -- joyful or traumatic -- are like rooms inside the many mansions. They are like corners in the rooms in the mansions, or dust in the corners of the rooms in the mansions, or specks in the dust in the corners of the rooms, or cells that contain billions of tiny universes inside the specks in the dust in the corners of the rooms of the mansions… and so on into infinity.
Can We Access Them?
So there are billions of mansions, but there is only One universal consciousness. And we choose our experiences in order to contribute to the information contained in that consciousness… to fill the Library of Time. Why do we want to fill the library? Because it is the source of everything. Universal consciousness stores all of our creations. And from those accumulated creations, we receive wisdom. It is HOME. When our physical bodies die, or when we go into deep meditation or dream states, we don't leave our bodies to float aimlessly in bliss. We go to receive and transmit information… this work IS our bliss. We return home with great pride in our work, in our creations. And we cannot stop creating; we are perpetual creation machines, and this is why it's so important to teach people how to find their way home, because the library is there just waiting to be accessed.
